JUDGMENT

HIS HONOUR: This is an application on the part of the plaintiffs to have joined as a first defendant a Slobias Pty Ltd which is presently a party to the action as the first third party.

I am informed that there has been attempts at mediation of the issues between all the parties, and that the need for this joinder arises out of discussions made during the course of that process. Beyond that, of course, there is an overriding desirability that all issues between all parties should be determined in the one proceedings, and for that reason I am prepared to make the order which is proposed.

There may be a question of whether the limitation period has expired in respect of some part of the plaintiff's claim against the proposed fourth defendant, but they are matters which can be addressed in the context of the trial, and after pleadings have been properly exchanged.

I make orders in terms of the draft initialled by me and placed with the papers.
